Blue Dahlia - The Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten Deluxe Version
Full step down tuning (DGCFAd) with CAPO 1ST FRET
Transcribed by Jack Cookson (Torn_Asunder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Assuming that Brian plays this in full step down, this is how to play
the basic chords of an amazing new Gaslight song! Just so you know, this song
is in Eb, but in the verses goes to the parallel minor so that explains
the many chords below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chords used (not relative to capo/tuning):

Intro/Chorus/Bridge:        Verses:

E     (022100)              Em7   (022033)
B     (x24442)              G     (320033)
A     (x02220)              Cadd9 (x32033)
G#/E  (4x2400)              D     (x00232)
C#m   (x46654)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro:
E, B, E, B, G#/E, A x3
E, B, E, B, G#/E, A, 
B -  key change...

Verse one:
       Em7
What a hot and sultry summer,
               Cadd9
The steam just slides up off them streets
    G
You got to stay inside and wait for the night,
         D
And then come on over and see me
          Em7
There's a poetry about these streets,
         Cadd9
It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath
     G
And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you,
    D
But me, I never believed
             Em7          D                          Cadd9    
 D
Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy
             Em7          D                          Cadd9
Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy


Chorus - back into major:
                      E
Where'd you get them scars?
            C#m
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                 E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                 E
How long was your life?
        C#m
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         A
Are you man enough to lay here?
                E             B                   E
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"


Interlude: E, B, E, B, G#/E, A,

E, B, E, B, G#/E, A, 
B - key change...


Verse two:
         Em7                              Cadd9
I had a dream about you once, and I could barely see your form
       G
And I met you between the wax and the needle,
        D
In the words of my favorite song
      Em7                                  Cadd9
Your black hair was like a raven with your tan skin on the beach
      G                                 D
Your backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief
         Em7                  D                    Cadd9
I've been so low down, I'm almost level with the ground


Chorus - back into major:
                      E
Where'd you get them scars?
            C#m
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                 E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                 E
How long was your life?
        C#m
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         A
Are you man enough to lay here?
                E             B                   E
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"


Interlude (plucked): E, C#m, B x2


Bridge:
         E                                C#m           B
Did they take you to the carnival to get locked up on a ride?
E
Me, I got caught up with the fortune tellers
          C#m                  A
And the ladies with the sleepy eyes
         A              B
It took years my baby just to come clean,
        C#m                 A
Every streetlight a reminder
    B           C#m
And all those apologies
         A         B            C#m
And the night was lonely next to me
         A         B              E
Even the night was lonely next to me


Final chorus:
                      E
Where'd you get them scars?
            C#m
How blue is your heart?
      A
Is it sad enough to break?
                 E             B
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                 E
How long was your life?
        C#m
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         A
Are you man enough to lay here?
                E             B                   E     C#m
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me

Outro:
           A           E    B
Come see about me, ah-ah
         C#m        A
Come see about me,
          E       B
Come see about me,
          C#m         A
Come see about me, ah-ah
           E          B
Come see about me, ah-ah
                 E
Whenever you're lonely
